Some Hannibal residents say let it snow

Hannibal residents are looking forward to the first major winter snowstorm (they may be the only ones,) so they can participate in the first Hannibal Snowman Building Contest.

Families and individuals build a snowman in their own yard or in one of

Hannibal's 25 parks

and take a photo of it for judging.

This contest sponsored by the

Hannibal Parks and Recreation Department

will run through February 25, 2013. All entries should consist of a photograph of the snowman and must have at least one of the builders in the photo for scale.

Prizes will be awarded for biggest, most original and most Hannibal spirit. Those winners will be picked by Hannibal Mayor Roy Hark and Hannibal Park Board Members.

To enter just e-mail your submissions to or send them to HPR, 320 Broadway, Hannibal, Mo. 63401.

We here at KHQA would also like you to "


" your entries so just snap a picture, send it to and we will "Share it" with the Tri-States!
